Wagner will come off the bench Friday against the Hawks, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

Wagner will start Wednesday's tilt with Portland, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Wagner will get the start in place of Thomas Bryant, who's out for rest purposes. Wagner's impressed in his second professional season and has amassed averages of 9.7 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 19.1 minutes per game while shooting 56.7 percent from the field, 34.3 percent from three and 80.6 percent from the line.
Wagner was ejected from Wednesday's game against the Knicks, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reports.
Wagner was ejected during the middle of the fourth quarter after receiving back-to-back technical fouls for an altercation with the referees. He finished with six points (2-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four rebounds, one steal and one assist in 16 minutes on the night and should be allowed to return in full for Friday's tilt with the Cavaliers.
Wagner put up 19 points (7-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), nine rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Grizzlies.
Wagner recently returned from an ankle injury that forced him to miss 25 games, but looked no worse for wear in this one. Thomas Bryant is out indefinitely because of a stress reaction in his right foot. The Wizards will likely take it easy with Bryant, so Bertans could see a solid uptick in his workload. The 22-year old is a standard league asset in only 20.2 minutes per game, so he's worth a look for teams in search of a big man.
Wagner (ankle) played 12 minutes off the bench Monday in the Wizards' 125-117 loss to the Warriors, finishing with eight points (4-5 FG) and two rebounds.
Back in action after a five-week absence, Wagner's playing time was unsurprisingly limited, but he fared well during the minutes he received. The Wizards ran a bloated 11-man rotation Monday, but more playing time should be available for all three of the Washington bigs that have recently returned from injuries -- Wagner, Thomas Bryant and Rui Hachimura -- once all have their restrictions lifted. Gary Payton, Ian Mahinmi and Isaac Bonga all played 11 minutes or fewer and are all candidates to be excised from the rotation in the near future.

Coach Scott Brooks said Friday that Wagner (ankle) could retake the court sometime next week, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
The 22-year-old has been sidelined by the left ankle sprain since Dec. 10 but appears to be closing in on his return. Wagner was selected to the World Team of the Rising Stars Challenge and Brooks indicated he expects the young forward to be able to play in that game Feb. 14.

Meanwhile, Brooks noted that rookie Rui Hachimura (groin) has returned to full practice and could be available for game action by the end of the upcoming week. With Brooks acknowledging that Wagner's potential return is further away, fantasy managers who have been stashing the second-year center out of Michigan during his extended absence shouldn't expect him back before early February at the soonest. Wagner has been out since Dec. 10 with a sprained left ankle.

The 2018 first-round selection was averaging 11.6 points and 6.0 rebounds prior to his ankle injury.
